And he has to clean up a bit - he's losing some real estate space.

Dem's fighting words 'Coupe - jest watchit!
I'm not saying I disagree with you, just that thems is fighting words.
(Oh sht! Maybe we can back each other up?!)

I was 'round at Bob's last Thursday and he's doing a marvelous job putting up more shelves and getting space for projects.

And he's still playing - he revisited an old project "Want Delco EFI?" this morning. Admittedly that's at OzGem (tech viewtopic 178590), but it's stuff which can be of interest to Piazza owners (if sourcing alternate ECUs etc).

And he moves with the times. As offers & things come & go, he modifies his business plans accordingly for the best optimal outcome.
Or maybe he's just like me - can't pull that finger out 'cos the others are all taken.

Luv to ramble more, but I gotta leave soon in Sept 2005.
Cheers!

You can talk.

Mr sell it two weeks later.



Somethins gotta give. Theres 2 manual Piazzas, i can only drive em one at a time so one has to go. Ive got no room.

Ive got 6 here so no of you others can talk.

Either sell the black one.
Or sell the two white ones that could be made up into a good manual.

I have had a little bit of interest.

Onya Bob! I told that 'coupe skumbag where to go! Yeah!

You know I want a manual Piazza but have 2 autos instead.
And I want manual Piazza diffs (LSD) to avoid transplanting the 3.9 crown and pinion onto Jackeroo & Rodeo LSDs for non-Gemini Isuzu passenger cars. (But any Piazza diff for the 3.9 crown & pinion; and I reckon the disks would be ok too.)
And there's the usual wish list of (preferably blown) electronic black boxes & circuits for deciphering (so they can be repaired or replaced).

FYI - I just bought a CRO today. Single trace and display is "small", but for $88 (Dick Smith May special) I finally bit. So now it should be much easier to investigate circuits etc.
I also bought a 150mm digital vernier ($20 with case) whilst I was there. Saves me having to find my other vernier, and finding my glasses once I do!
PS - the CRO should help my investigation of cheap Hall Effect sensors (mounted on the startermotor to sense flywheel ringgear teeth) for my crank-based CAS. (I've started the hi-level programming to see if a cheap PIC can be used. That'll be quicker than a full uPC based system.)

Now where's my 4ZE1 engine bits?
Why do I get so distracted?

And while im at it, what did i hear you say????

Whats that??? You will have the jackaroo running by the end of next week and the jigga you bought from big dick is going to help you become the world wide king of Piazza dash repair.

What and then when the Jack is going we are going to get in and clean up your ............. um i dont have a name for it. It looks like a shed from the outside, but its not a shed, its more like an automotive museum come old timers auto parts store that a suicide bomber went off in.

Yeah im the new hard love Bob. If ive got to get my shit together and in order so does every other kent :yawinkle:

Ive owned the Nissan for nearly a yr now, hardly two weeks. Bought the TE Sedan in feb and since then repaired the damage, rubbed the whole car down, resprayed it, took it to rwc and it gets rego next week. Hardly dragging my feet seeing as i stripped 1 x whole gemini and rebuilt 1 x whole Gemini including prep work for a mate - all while working arvo shift 5days a week. Fuck with that cunts.

[dont bring the "dust bucket" into this - you cant rush perfection]

Hey bob, you wouldnt want to swap a running 280zx targa with a new clutch for one of your Piazzas would ya? Lil cousin is keen again...

Just like you can't rush the TX sedan, oh wait you sold that once you finally fixed it up, or the red piazza, oh wait i think that's a shell on bricks now because you used all the parts in the silver one, hang on you sold that one too after you fixed it up lol

Least now you've learnt when you fix a car keep the bloody thing lol

Yes i spew i sold the TX sedan, but it made way for a good reason - it paid for the turbo on the coupe and most of the suspension.

Its not a kneesahn bob, its a Dats-shit - its bad enough ive got to sell my cousins [admitedly clean] 280ZX manual, now i have to get rid of my other cousins one and get him a nice, manual rwd for an everydayer.

Yeah and i know where theres a nice manual 280ZX aust delivered Coupe (note, not targa roof crap) it black it looks tough and he only wants 3k for it.

Its all pretty good except the interior hasnt been done up yet.

Ive got a manual Piazza here, con him into buying that.

An auto Pintara, its just begging for a CA18 turbo and manual conversion. :yawinkle:
